Australian alt-electro pioneers, Empire Of The Sun (Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore), announce an extensive U.S. headline tour plus shows in Brixton, UK and Paris, FR.
To celebrate the decade anniversary of their debut album, Walking On A Dream, the band will be playing intimate venues across the country, with two-night stands in numerous cities, including Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles — which will go on sale this Friday, February 22 at 10:00 a.m.
The tour announcement follows the release of the limited-edition vinyl of Walking On A Dream: 10th Anniversary Edition. The special edition includes a gatefold, 180-gram heavyweight transparent blood orange vinyl of Walking On A Dream and a unique code to download the unreleased track “Chrysalis”, featuring the original artwork from the initial 2009 vinyl release.
Since its release in 2009, Walking On A Dream has sold nearly two million copies worldwide, won eight ARIA Awards (including Album of The Year, Single of the Year and Best Group) and chalked up two BRIT nominations (including Best International Album). The band followed their debut with the release of two more full-length albums – 2013’s Ice On The Dune and 2016’s Two Vines, selling a combined three million albums, accumulating more than 650 million streams and more than 300 million YouTube views over the course of their career.
